Jedi master and padawan defend the kyber cave

In the world of LEGO Star Wars, it’s not often that we get a reference to the all-too-brief animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars by Genndy Tartakovsky. But builder r_t_zan is not ready to move on from the Cartoon Network piece in this scene from Chapters 14 through 16. Depicting the start of the Battle of Ilum, Jedi Luminara Unduli and Barriss Offee are surprised by Separatist droids attempting to destroy caverns on the ice planet of Ilum. Kyber crystals, shown in transparent greens and blues, are the power source for all lightsabers. So it goes without saying that keeping this cavern safe is a top priority for the Jedi. Color plays a big role in this creation, whether it’s using light aqua to add an icy blue tint to the snow, or the mix of old and current dark gray in the caverns below. While the display doesn’t contain much action, it certainly puts LEGO texture on full display. Plus, this build is a great way to showcase and show off a couple of rarely-seen minifigures from a rarely-seen Star Wars source.

    Yes, we’re trying to figure out what’s going on here. Thanks for the concern.

    Hi, I am the original creator, I used the replace function of Flickr to upload a new pic with perspective fixed, I believe you got the image link before the replacement which probably broke the original image link.

    hi, sorry to bother but how it it still not fixed in a week? All you needed to do was delete the link, get a new one from flickr and paste it again ?

    I suspect there’s some browser caching issues going on. On my system, it was working properly at the time of my last reply. I’ve reset the link just to be safe, though.
